From total beginner to advanced skaters, it’s a fun, safe and great way to increase your skating skills being taught by one of our professional ice coaches on a variety of days and times.

The junior Learn to skate programme is suitable for ages 5-17 and the adult programme is for over 18s. For under 5s we recommend parent and toddler sessions.

Junior Learn to Skate

  • Unlimited access to public skating sessions
  • 30 minute coached lessons
  • Ice practice time included 
  • Continuous assessment and online record of achievement 
  • Year-round Learn to Skate Programme 


What should I expect?
At these sessions you will be taught basic skills by our NISA (National Ice Skating Association) professional coaches – this will allow you to become confident on the ice and can progress to individual lessons & competitions in figure skating, synchronised skating or even ice hockey!

What should I wear?
For those of you just starting out, we recommend you dress in warm clothes that are non-restrictive e.g. leggings/stretchy trousers and a long sleeve top. Wearing lots of layers is a good idea and you can layer down if needed. We would advise younger children to bring a helmet for the first few lessons.

What happens during lessons?
Each level will be given a 30 minute group lesson with a coach on the ice. On arrival, you should check in at reception, get yourself prepared with your skates on (skate hire is included for those that need) and make your way to the side of the rink in time for your lesson start time.

How do I progress?
There are 8 levels in our learn to skate programme, followed by 3 Star levels and you will move through these as you pass each element. Our clubs at the Linx Ice Arena welcome skaters at different levels of the programme and you will be introduced to these at various stages throughout the year.

How do I pay?
You pay £32.50 per month by direct debit. On sign up, you will be required to fill in a direct debit membership
